After he left basketball, poker became his focus. So much that he is known for his dedication and huge part of the growing portuguese poker scene. He began by creating a website and building a community that is now the largest in Portugal. The next step were live tournaments where he played a major role by founding the first poker circuit in the country and acted as tournament director.
